Single use plastic has been a hot topic in the news this year, after the general public were shocked at the devastation plastic is doing to our seas and marine animals, featured in the BBC Blue Planet documentary series narrated by Sir David Attenborough. There is now many plans and projects from both a government and charity level to reduce single use plastic use and recycle more.
If you are interested in protecting the environment you might be interested to know that all the water butts and the 220 litre and 330 litre composter are made from 100% recycled plastic. These useful garden products that can help save rainwater, and make rich nutritous soil from garden and kitchen waste, are made from plastic waste, that otherwise would be buried in landfill. The plastic comes from both consumer waste and industrial waste. For consumer waste, these are plastics which are collected at the kerbside by councils, such as your empty drinks bottles. The post industrial waste is things like scrap from plastic companies, old gas pipes when replaced by utilities companies, old wheelie bins, car bumpers, etc.).
